Quick witted bars, synth-ladened breakbeat and soul shredding riffs were on full display at Notion’s The Great Escape Festival stage, featuring Nix Northwest, yunè pinku, VC Pines and more.

Serving up a slice of music’s future stars, we curated a stellar line up of artists on the cusp of greatness at this year’s The Great Escape Festival. The scene was set in Brighton’s renowned The Arch venue, which champions underground sounds, and seemed fitting for the multiplicity of genres that were on display over the afternoon.  


Kicking off the show was Quasi Qui, an alt-pop duo known for their immersive live sets. VC Pines followed, bringing his unique brand of poetically delivered punk to the south coast. Fuelled by his jazz-tinged hip-hop productions, Nix Northwest then bounded on stage to rapturous applause, perking up the crowd with tracks from ‘Xin’s Disappearance’. Irish Malaysian Londoner yunè pinku brought her spellbinding live show, leaving everyone in awe of her unique brand of warped techno. Headlining the stage were the Somerset duo Sad Night Dynamite, whose indie rap created a sing-along atmosphere that saw out the evening in perfect fashion.
